If you don't get a better offer, consider waiting another year and retaking the LSAT (eurgh I hate giving that advice to a 167 but it's just really more difficult for international students). I don't think you'd be very happy with your opportunities post-graduation out of UMinn in three years, and you may be forced to return to your home country if you can't find a sponsoring job. That would be a wasted three years, imo.
Hmm, I took the LSAT for three times this year and can't retake it until Feb. 2014.
Still I'm hoping for a better offer.
